They interviewed Morse on the news just now and he is PISSED.
It's over, everyone. I can't believe we did it, I am just beaming with pride for my fellow Coloradans who took care of business and all of our friends and allies in the other states.
HAH! That makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside.
(Mods; don't edit this one. This was an historic day and what he said was accurately portrayed and not offensive.)
Good...now he knows how his constituents felt.
Giron is currently nowhere to be found, apparently.
Glad to hear it.
Not just because of guns, but because these elected officials didn't listen to their constituents. Now they're paying the price and the rest are being reminded that it's the will of the People that puts them in their office. And that the People can replace them.
I like that. It's refreshing.
I'll 2nd that...it is refreshing.
Does this open up a reasonable possibility of rescinding the laws that were passed?
John; I'd say "pretty damned good".
But I'm not a fortune teller.
Thing is, this is going to send a shockwave through the political world. Politicians will now know they aren't "safe" when they push the vote button and betray their constituents.
If I were the newly elected officials...my first order of business would be finding out just exactly what my constituents wanted to do about the laws in question.
I'm hoping that this will give citizens across the nation the initiative to challenge their current representatives.
Hoping that this will give elected officials across the nation the incentive do their jobs....and represent the will of the People!
This should send a powerful message to other CO politicians who might suspect that they've angered their constituents. If there's a better time to start pushing HARD for the law to be rescinded, I can't imagine when it would be.
Remember, we will NEVER win this war because there will always be people attacking us. Our only options are to continue fighting or give up and lose.
This was certainly a battle won, but it's a stepping stone, not an end in itself.
So what's the first step in rescinding the law now that there's sufficient support to manage it?
I'd say the people of Colorado have made themselves pretty clear in regards to this legislation.
Giron has apparently conceded with out actually making the concession speech, which isn’t actually all that surprising considering that as it’s become more apparent that this wasn’t gonna go her way she has distanced herself more and more from the people
Awesome news! Be proud Colorado.
HAHA! Front page news on my tablet.
Took a screenshot for posterity.
I guess the next step is for the good folks of Colorado to let the newly elected officials know what they want...
My congratulations to the people of Colorado. Not only have you sent a statewide message ypu have sent a message that will be heard around this nation. Good job folks.
Let the letter writing begin.
It would be awesome if there were a LOT of emails waiting for CO state representatives when they came to work in the morning. Not just for the two new ones, but for ALL of them.
Again, as someone who is actually here I'm going to say we pretty much have
Herpin has already said getting the legislation overturned is number one on the list
HAHA! Top "US" category headliner on the New York Times.
Guess this seals the deal on the question "Will this make mainstream news"...
Think it will.
Great job guys! Very happy to see these two bums get thrown out on their back sides, and knowing that Bloomberg spent a bunch of his money for nothing, makes it all the sweeter of a victory.
Maybe you guys can help some of the other counties get organized, and throw out a few more of the supporters of these laws.
The other next step is to prevent the media from spinning this as a win for "the gun lobby"...
That's not what it was (not at the heart of it)...this was a win for the People.
